    My Client Testimonials

    "As a native Napan, I have known many real estate agents, Grete ranks as the best that I have worked with. Grete has the ability to see the potential in a home and focus on marketing the property to emphasize the home's strengths. Grete has great integrity but is also very market savvy, which I believe is a unique and special combination of characteristics. I take my personal recommendations seriously and really have only a few to list, Grete is definitely one of them. If you are looking for excellent results but also want a person with integrity to represent you in the buying or selling process, Grete is the best." Rachel
    "Grete Orsoe was very professional and a very helpful amazing person" Hassina Taiebi
    "Grete was fantastic! She showed us tons of properties over many months and we finally found a home we truly love. She was very patient with us and always found time for us and we had a great time searching for a home. Grete always had time to answer our texts, emails and our many questions as we were first time home buyers. I would recommend Grete to anyone looking for a home." Matt and Hilary
    "We were very impressed in overall plan for the sale that was developed and presented at our first meeting." Jean Cullinane
    "Grete is a very special person. Her performance as our agent was very professional. " Janice Swanson
    "Grete was very helpful and supportive in helping us prepare and sell our house in Napa, if anyone has a need for an experienced and well informed agent we would have no hesitation in recommending Grete in the future." Kevin & Susan Desmarais
    "My only hesitation in writing this review is that I won't do full justice to how wonderful our experience with Grete was--and continues to be. If you've been looking for a home then you know the stress involved. Grete is one part realtor and one part therapist. She never lost patience with us, though we gave her ample opportunities! She was fantastic. I can't imagine how stressful things might have been without her. No pressure. Ever. She let us work through our process and was a tireless advocate when we were ready to move forward. That being said, she's honest and will tell you what she thinks or knows about a home or area. You're not going to find another agent who knows this area better than Grete Orsoe. Grete's optimism that we would end up in the right home at the right time was ceaseless and buoyed us throughout. And she was right. We could not have asked for a better agent and companion on this journey. We'll forever be grateful to Grete. We knew she was working with a lot of other people--giving them the same care and attention she provided to us--but you would never know it from the way she treated us; it was as if we were her only concern in the world. That was incredibly special for both of us. We saw other agents who appeared to view their clients as strictly a means to an end. They were pushy, demanding and seemed to view people as a necessary nuisance. Not so with Grete. I'm convinced that her relationship-building was primary reason why our offer was accepted. She loves people and loves being a guide on what is an incredibly rewarding experience." Brian & Martha
    "We drove into Napa at about 5pm with a handful of addresses we wanted to check out before we went to our hotel/dinner and one we really liked was Grete's listing. We called her and left a message and about 10 minutes later she returned our call we met her at that property the next morning and then she suggested several others to help her understand what we were really looking for it certainly helped us narrow the field. We spent many days with Grete on that trip and one more and through it all she kept us focused, laughing and well fed. We were moving from Hawaii to Napa and our timing was all happening during Thanksgiving and pre-Christmas so it was a challenge on all fronts but Grete stood beside us as our partner in this adventure to find the perfect home. I guess it was fate or just extremely good luck that our paths crossed that first day in Napa because we have bought & sold many houses in our life but this experience was simply amazing. We cannot thank her enough of all she did while we were in the buying process and even more after we closed. She is a very special person and a great agent." Robbie Hardy & Robert Dale
    "My wife Christina and I, bought 2 properties in the last 2 years with Gretes help. We found Grete to be very professional and courteous and a pleasure to work with." Michael Dowd
    " Grete Orsoe is a wonderful agent. She is the best I have ever worked with after more than a dozen real estate transactions." Anonymous
    "It was wonderful working with someone who can give insight into locals and neighborhoods." Alan and Leslie
    "Grete is a kind, gracious lady who has vast experience in the field and displays her knowledge along with the upmost degree of professionalism." Sharon Levine
    "Grete is a seasoned professional and is genuinely interested in finding you a home not just selling you a house. Grete was always available by e-mail and her response time was excellent. I was a first time buyer and she truly made me feel at ease." Maria Dowd
    "In the first week I received multiple offers and closed in less than a month at a good price. The closing proceeded smoothly. What more could I ask for?" Theodore Weicker
    "Grete was a delight to work with--responsive, caring, realistic, and helpful. I absolutely would recommend her to others needing an agent." Arletta Cortright
    "Grete is very knowledgeable of property in the Napa Valley and brought us multiple offers on the property we were selling. She did a great job." Robert Bartlett
    "Grete stayed on top of this transaction from beginning to end, kept us updated as things progressed. We would recommend her to anyone." Rick and Susie Leonard
    "Grete helped us buy our condo in Napa, It was a great experience, she made herself available for questions at all times and came up with answers in a timely manner, Her calm and confident manner plus her since of humor made her a pleasure to do business with, thank you Grete." Michael and Christina Dowd
    "Grete was a real pleasure to work with, and she has a vast knowledge of the area which was particularly helpful. She showed us eleven houses, and one was practically perfect for us. She was particularly helpful in the paperwork process and in the negotiations with the seller. The Home Warranty has come in very handy as this is an old house and has provided a few "surprises". Grete has stayed in touch with us, and I plan to suggest her to some friends who are possibly selling later this year." Alan and Leslie Baribeault
